You gotta know when to hold em. Holder!

It's pretty clear the U.S. Attorney General is not the brightest bulb at the Department of Justice. Exhibit A: The Marc Rich Pardon. But, he makes an excellent bag holder. That's why Bill Clinton used him. Meanwhile, as Air Force One carried President Barack Hussein Obama out of Washington on a trip to ASIA and out of the line of outrage. Holder was put on stage to defend the wisdom of putting 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed on trial in a civilian court in New York City. Here is the money quote:

"Eric H. Holder Jr. called his order Friday to send the suspected plotters of the Sept. 11 attacks to trial in Manhattan "the toughest decision I've had to make as attorney general."

Well I guess unlike Obama on Afghanistan at least Eric Holder made a decision. A stupid one but, a decision nonetheless. But, with Obama safely in Japan Eric Holder is once again still left holding the bag.
